Working in the yoga asanas involves lots of different movements so make sure your food has had plenty of time to digest. It is recommended that you leave two hours after a snack and four hours after a full meal.
In the class you will be introduced to the basic asanas which will include standing poses, sitting poses and recuperative (resting) poses. You will be shown how to use yoga props, such as belts and blocks, to help you achieve the postures to the best of your ability.
If you are a beginner you will start by building strength and stamina, improving muscular tone, flexibility and alignment. Yoga helps to reduce tiredness and soothes the nerves. It also trains and disciplines the mind so concentration is improved. This is why yoga is so helpful if you suffer from stress.
